Hi Beautiful one

When you look at an image what do you notice? How does it make you feel? Do you remember what made you smile like that? Aren't you glad you spent the time? Don't you feel beautiful? Welcome. Look around. Imagine how an image can capture laughter, confidence, love, emotion. What would your image look like?

More Mommy and Me

I just can't get enough of this little firecracker (and her mama!) So sweet and spunky. I just love these kind of pictures. Totally you. Totally fun.

Mike & Shawna Beloved Session

So...ladies... get your jealous on... Shawna is a beautiful woman. She is sweet, sexy, and so down to earth. I just can't say enough good things about her. So why would it surprise anyone how wonderful her husband is to her? I have taken a number of photos of their family and while Mike has been great... you can tell it wasn't his favorite thing in the world (sorry Mike!). Shawna came to me a few weeks back to do some super beautiful portraits of her for her husband. Well... as you can image he loved them, but while she was trying to surprise her, she was the one in the biggest surprise. After seeing her images he wasn't to do a beloved session with her. WOW! It was his idea ladies! (that is where the jealously comes in).
So men out there (if you made it this far)...if you want to make you lady melt, suggest a beloved session. Imagine surprising her with that! She would pop with excitement, plus you two get to have lots of fun together.
Thanks Mike and Shawna.

Hayden {Mommy and Me Session}

Does it get any better to have a play date with one of your children? Having fun, giggling, rolling on the floor, playing ball.. and just being together. This little girl reminded me so much of my Ansley. So full of spirit and spunk. She seemed so big for a six year old! It was too much fun. This session is one of the main reasons I started shooting women. It was a session just like this when I first realized that moms don't have pictures of us loving and laughing with our children. So many special moments uncaptured. Thanks Corky and Hayden for a fun afternoon!

Baby Sophia

Who does not love a sweet sweet SWEET baby? This is my newest Niece. They were here for a really quick trip and I got to take a few images of her... She has the cutest eyes and so much hair! I love it!

Shane and Jen Beloved Session

So I love engagement sessions. The love between two people right before they are getting married is so full and alive. These two were no exception. An early morning..COLD early morning...session was hot! These two were so cute and fun. We were out for about two hours and while at the end we were all ice cubes I am so glad we went out. We had beautiful light and a wonderful morning!

Cover Girl

Beauty is not skin deep... it dwells inside of our spirit and radiates out through our smile, eyes, and our laughter.
Beautiful beautiful beautiful... those are the only words for this amazing woman!

What makes a session rock? Regardless if it is a glamour session, an engagement, or a senior... commitment! You can't just be there half way. You have to totally engage. I may ask you to do things you think are silly or just totally out of your comfort zone, but let me tell you...I have a HUGE vested interest in making you look awesome.

So being too cool for school isn't going to make you look great. Commitment.... commitment to the shoot..don't just show up. That may mean thinking about what you are going to wear well in advance or shopping for something really special. Think about accessories as well as outfits. What you wear will set the mood for the shoot. But most of all come to have fun... I promise you the more commit and engage the better you and your images will look!

Double the Beauty

Girls like to have fun...together! So this valentine's day I am offering one session for two lucky girls to have some fun! Two friends... two sisters... a mother and daughter... treat yourselves to a fun day of getting glam and creating beautiful portraits of yourselves alone and/or together.
Our Day would star at 10:30 am with make up... a light lunch... and then photographic magic! This session is ~300.00 for hair and make up for two, a catered lunch, and one proof book of both of your images. The minimum order for this session is ~700.00. My usual session fee is a ~150 (including make up) per person with a ~500.00 minimum order...so this is a great deal.
I am only offering one of these Sessions on Tuesday, Feb. 14th! So if you are interested call now to scheudle!
